I'm also open to illustrators. AND I'm looking for picture books, BUT ONLY author-illustrators.

(I'm sorry to PB, MG, & YA authors. I'm not capable of reading everything at this time, but hope to open more widely in the future. For now, I'm taking referrals only).

I downloaded Threads like everyone else but am not so sure what to do about it professionally since my Threads name is my personal Instagram account lol

Anyway, a new #MSWL for you! Young YA. Protagonists ages 13-15. Bonus points if illustrated and funny!

Oop! Just want to clarify something because I realize I may have been unclear: I am looking to represent picture books and graphic novels ONLY. I'm happy to look at queries for authors, illustrators, and author-illustrators, but at this time I'm not looking for prose novels.

Guys! I’ll be open to unsolicited queries soon, so it’s my turn to post my #MSWL! Thread below⬇️

Overall: I am looking to represent authors and illustrators for picture books and graphic novels (from MG through Adult). I am also looking to uplift and highlight BIPOC and other marginalized voices.

As 4/15, I am completely caught up on queries.

Still looking for author/illustrators!

I'm very hungry for MG and YA non-fiction.
